Kanye West has been quick to lend his services when it comes to helping to promote Kobe Bryant’s Nike shoes. He stepped in as the villain in last year’s Black Mamba short film and then showed up again for the ZK7 to be a part of the KobeSystem‘s star-studded live audience. It looks like the favor has finally been returned as we get our first look at this special version of the Air Yeezy 2 rumored to have been created for Kobe himself. As you can see, the shoe adopts the wild color scheme from the Christmas ‘Leopard’ edition of the Zoom Kobe VII Supreme, giving the Yeezy series perhaps its wildest colorway yet. These have indeed been confirmed to be legit and while it’s not known if they were limited to a “1 of 1” for Kobe, it’s unlikely that we’ll see a retail release for these, so for now, enjoy the pics and we’ll be sure to keep you posted if new details surface. via thakidfrombk on NT
